Superbrass Day - Saturday 18th July

Join John Packer Ltd this July for a very special one-off workshop with Superbrass's musical director Roger Argente. Superbrass have shot to fame in recent years and are now widely regarded as one of the most talented brass ensembles in the UK and around the world.

This workshop will offer the rare opportunity to play with other players of a high standard in a large brass ensemble, using exciting music selected from the Superbrass repertoire, all under the direction of a top music professional! Roger will also be answering questions and giving advice on how to arrange, compose, and play music. The two sessions (morning and afternoon) have limited availability for Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn and Tuba, so book your place early!
